John Mackovic was a quarterback at Wake Forest from 1962-64 and began a coaching career in 1965 as a graduate assistant at Miami (Ohio). He went on to become a head coach in the NFL with the Kansas City Chiefs (1983-86) and college with Illinois (1988-91), Texas (1992-97) and Arizona (2001-03). He currently resides in the Palm Springs area and writes a twice-weekly in-season column for the Desert Sun.
Mackovic is against a playoff in big-time college football, doesn't believe players should be paid and thinks the Big 12's future is cloudy at best.
"I don't see that conference, because of the way they have negotiated bigger payments to Texas and Oklahoma, surviving," he said.
